Will Catholics Vote Like Catholics in 2008?

Here’s a message from Karl Keating Catholic Answers Action, 2020 Gillespie Way, El Cajon, California 92020 USA Phone: 1-800-890-0461 Fax: 619-387-0042:

If ever there were a time when America needed our now-famous Voter’s Guide for Serious Catholics . . . that time is now. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the 2008 elections could determine the moral fate of our entire nation. Key Moral Issues for Catholics.

As you know, the Voter’s Guide for Serious Catholics is the definitive voter’s guide for explaining the Catholic position on the “five non-negotiables” . . . Abortion-Euthanasia-Embryonic Stem Cell Research-Human Cloning-Homosexual “Marriage”

These are the most critical moral issues of our time. They represent everything that’s wrong in America (and the world) today—because they’re the key tenets of the “culture of death” versus the “Gospel of Life.” If we lose on these issues, we lose everything. The problem is, they’re all being decided right now in the political arena—by people who have no clue what they’re voting on or how their vote will affect the future of our country. That’s particularly true for the average Catholic in the United States.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: “Catholics are the most wrong-headed voters in America.” They typically vote for candidates who oppose Catholic teaching on the five non-negotiables. Often it’s because those candidates belong to a particular party that Catholics vote for out of habit. Or, more and more, the candidates themselves are Catholic—but their voting records and their political stances fly in the face of Catholic moral teaching.
